About the name

The name of this site, The rest is noise, tries to be a double homage: first, to the excellent book by Alex Ross about classical music in the 20th century, The rest is noise (2009). Second, to French musician Pierre Schaeffer, father of the musique concrète, to whom "the only difference between music and noise is the intention".
